Here are four Paul Whiteman Acoustic recordings from the early 1920s, from my own collection of 78 RPM. Two of them, "In a Boat" and "Sweetheart," aren't very common - grimreaper doesn't seem to know about them - while the other two are just about the most common Paul Whiteman songs you could get.

The disc #s are Victor 18690 and 18789. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Paul Whiteman, acoustic recording, 78 rpm, whispering, sweetheart, band, big, 1920, 1923, in a...
